Mixx FM's Sink or Swim - The Race That Stops The Southwest

We thought that no one had broadcasted on it... Turns out we had... Back in the 1970's for the Colac Yacht Club Regatta!

We thought that no one had swum it... They had! In 1980, Ricky Keogh was the first person to swim the width of Lake Colac, while Leanne Basham swam Lake Colac as a 14 year old girl in 1972!

But... Has anyone raced on it? Not yet!

It's Mixx FM's Sink or Swim - the race that stops the Southwest!

On Friday December 6, join us during the first week of summer as we race from Meredith Park to the Lake Colac Boat Ramp - a whopping 6.5km in width!

There will be prizes, a BBQ, live broadcast on the Lake and a whole lot more!
